Working for the weekend – and it’s finally here! Todd has been traveling the entire week, and we have missed him like crazy.
Today I am linking up with April, Natasha, and Christina; Karli; Erika, Narci, and Andrea for Five on Friday, Oh Hey Friday!, and Friday Favorites. I am also linking up with the group from High Five for Friday, Bright on a Budget!
ONE: Peonies! Always a favorite. My sweet husband gave me a beautiful bouquet including some for Mother’s Day, my mother-in-law brought me a mason jar of them from her yard (they smell amazing!) and my mom’s gift to me for Mother’s Day is to help me plant a peony garden in my yard! Good things. And I feel so loved by those 3 people.
The now-everywhere OPI polish on my nails (loveitsomuch!)
TWO: Sneak peek for next week! I am working on a collaboration with Pink Blush Maternity, with a giveaway…coming soon!! If you are expecting, stay tuned for that, plus 3 other looks and outfit ideas. Photo credit goes to Andi Perullo.
THREE: Roasted Carrot Hummus. If you are eating paleo or Whole 30, or avoiding legumes in general, I want to share this wonderful diet-friendly hummus with you! It is made with a base of roasted carrots and roasted cauliflower, rather than chickpeas. I added extra lemon juice, a little extra cauliflower, and some extra of the seasonings. The 3 of us really enjoyed this, and it was a great way to add more vegetable servings to Davis’ meals. We served ours with paleo BLT wraps and veggies.
FOUR: Some outfit details. This light wash chambray shirt dress from Old Navy is a current favorite. And on sale! I wore it on Mother’s Day and I’m wearing it again today. I bought a size up to fit my bump, but it would be super cute in your normal size if you’re able to wear regular clothes. The t-shirt in the casual outfit below is from Asos, and it is maternity. I wore it two full days in a row this week! I am also loving this nail polish on my toes (a really pretty dark green), and this watch from my boys for Mother’s Day!
This watch has rose gold, which makes it so pretty and feminine. And the bracelet from Etsy is one I’ve had since the month my son was born. I wear it daily. It says DAVIS with his birthday. I hope to add another when baby #2 comes!
FIVE: If you missed it earlier this week, I posted a Charlotte Restaurant Review. The list includes some awesome restaurants in and around our city that are perfect for date nights and foodies! I will have another post with some more casual spots next week.
